I would be very wary of using any kind of masking tape. Some will dry out and some will become a gummy mess. These days there are far too many tapes being made by the " Lucky Golden Rat Excrement Extra Sh*tty Chinese Tape Company. Some of which would be far better if the adhesive was on the other side. The roll of silver mylar tape I use is (3m) over forty years old and has not changed properties at all. It is made that way for a reason.
